Riverside Fine Arts show

The "Akala" story series being viewed in the lobby area at the Good Shephard Church in Riverside on Stockton St.
By piece titled "Inquisitive Eyes" . The carved block is next to it so people could see a woodblock and the process.

With artist Marsha Hatcher

With artist Philip Cozma

With artists Jay Wright and John Bunker.
I have 26 woodcuts in this show which opened Jan. 15 and will go until the 29th.

Christmas in Michigan

Grateful for family!
All bundled up and ready to go sledding with my nephews.

Through Our Eyes - Each One Teach One

Artist Marsha Hatcher and myself did similar images of Cayenne Pepper Pickers from our trip to Nigeria.
Marsha's image is in acrylic painting with white paint only. Mine is a linoleum print.

My mentor was artist Cookie Davis. I put my "Uwacu" print into 3-D in clay putting the patterns of the skirt "carved" in the clay.

Cookie's sculpture is on the left and mine is on the right. This show is at the Ritz Theatre and LaVilla Museum. It opened Nov. 19, 2009 and goes to July 30, 2010.
